Captain Mark and Chef/Mate Sally
Mark and Sally chartered for many years on their own catamaran, VIKING DREAM until she was sadly lost in Hurricane Irma in 2017.
When Mark and Sally first considered the life of the sailing couple, they were on a year’s leave from their corporate jobs in the UK, trying to find some balance in their until-then crazy lives. Sally had been Training and HR manager with a major British retail group, sorting out employees’ problems, whilst Mark had been on the other side of retail, setting up high-end malls in airports. He had 250 staff and 25 managers reporting to him and, when he wasn’t traveling for business, he was dealing with the inevitable headaches of management.
Throughout their many years together, sailing, travel and outdoor pursuits have been the hub of their relationship. So in 2001 they embarked on an invigorating world tour for 12 months. They travelled extensively through America, Canada, Alaska, Peru, Australia & New Zealand, returning over Asia and Europe. Their yachting experience includes cruising in Croatia, Greece, Turkey, the Caribbean, the Whitsundays, Malaysia and Thailand. Not to mention UK waters, and a TransAtlantic Crossing! On returning from traveling, they decided to turn a leisure activity they love into a lifestyle.
Cruising the islands and seeking out that idyllic palm fringed bay, where the sea, the sky and the sand invoke that feeling of total tranquillity, and being at one with nature, is what they love to share with their guests.
If you’d like to learn about sailing they are both qualified instructors and love to impart their knowledge, but are equally happy to pass you a cushion and bring you an iced drink while they sail the yacht!
They are also very passionate about food and presenting their guests with fine cuisine, wines and cocktails. Sallys dishes are an exceptional variety of styles, reflecting her extensive travels and experience of different cultures. Marks cocktails are legendary, both self styled and classics. They are also known as Captain Cocktail and Sally in the Galley!
Captain Michael and Chef/Mate Brittany
While working as a Day Charter Captain and Sailing Instructor in Chicago, Michael met Brittany as she was pursuing her goal of learning how to sail. The two of them soon realized their mutual dream of living and working on the water in the Caribbean, fell in love, and started planning to make their dream a reality.
Together they’ve sailed over 10,000 nautical miles in the Mediterranean, along the East Coast, Lake Michigan, and in the Caribbean. One of their favorite passages was sailing from Faro Portugal to Valletta Malta to deliver a sailing yacht for the Rolex Middle Sea Race. They have also worked on private super yachts, honing their hospitality skills and learning the finer points of yacht service and care.
The two of them take great pride in providing 5-star service while ensuring their guests have an unforgettable experience. When not sailing or entertaining, you’ll find Michael and Brittany scuba diving, practicing yoga, riding bikes, or enjoying a day at the beach.
Michael’s love for sailing started at a young age, when on vacation in Mexico his family charted a sailboat for a day. It was on this trip that Michael knew he had found his dream career.
Michael spent many years learning how to sail in Chicago, eventually becoming the Fleet Manager and Lead Instructor for the school that taught him so much. To this day, his passion for teaching others how to sail shows whenever he meets someone eager to learn. Many of his students have gone on to a career in sailing, including several currently working on their own circumnavigations. Along this path, Michael has found great joy in scuba diving and focused on becoming a leader both above and below the water. As a PADI Dive Master, Michael enjoys leading certified guests of all skill levels under the waves. While diving, guests will experience a world far different than the one they leave behind when they come on vacation.Whether fishing, free diving, snorkeling or scuba diving, Michael is a natural leader and enjoys sharing these activities with his guests. His warm, welcoming personality will make you feel right at home while relaxing in paradise.
Brittany became a professional yacht Chef through the marriage of her main passions in life: food, travel, and the great outdoors. She’s worked as a Private Chef for high profile clients and is comfortable cooking you a wide variety of cuisines. Brittany’s love for being on the water was instilled in her from a young age where she spent her summers boating, waterskiing, and tubing on lakes in the Midwest. Thanks to the help of her handsome sailing instructor, she now holds a 25T Master USCG License with a Sailing Mate endorsement. This, coupled with her experience in the galley makes her a well rounded 1st Mate.
Brittany was blessed to be raised in a family full of good cooks, and has enjoyed cooking for friends and family from a young age. While pursuing a Bachelors degree in Environmental Sustainability, she immersed herself in the Farm-to-Table movement by working in both restaurants and on many of Chicago’s urban farms, growing specialty produce for top-tier restaurants in the Windy City. After graduation, she went on to complete an internship with one of Sonoma County’s oldest wineries, teaching her the basics of viticulture and igniting her interest in food and wine pairing.
Brittany loves bringing people together through food and looks forward to providing you with a unique culinary experience.

What an amazing week with our boys on Azuria!! The crew are truly awesome at welcoming you to your home on the sea. They are so warm, and knowledgeable!! The boat is immaculate, spacious and a wonderful place to be for your trip of a lifetime. The craft cocktails flow and the food is so delicious....plentiful is an understatement.... I highly recommend Azuria to anyone wanting a first class vacation!
We just got back from a week long charter aboard the Azuria with the crew and it was amazing! We don’t have the words to adequately describe how fantastic the experience was. The Azuria is a beautiful boat and a great place to call home for a week. She is comfortable and pristine with plenty of space and toys to spread out, relax and enjoy the surroundings. Surroundings which include sun filled days, white sand beaches, and beautiful blue waters- in other words a picture post card. That is just the backdrop for the crew to work their magic! They are warm and welcoming hosts that put us at ease from day one. Their hospitality, attention to detail and mixology and culinary skills have to be experienced to be believed. They had us spoiled. It was like eating in the best restaurants in town every night!! This was meant to be a once in a lifetime trip for us, but this was such an amazing adventure, we can’t imagine not doing it again!!" 😍
I wanted to thank you for a beautiful time. You certainly went overboard in your efforts to make sure everyone was happy aboard the Azuria. The special attention to individual tastes at meals, the work you did to tow the children around on the tube, the fantastic birthday celebration, the emphasis on safety did not go unnoticed. All four of us appreciated the chart talks and the meal planning sessions. While we were in the total relaxation mode, you were working hard behind the scenes. Thank you. My most precious memories of the trip were the intimate discussions we were able to have with the grandkids. We had lots of time. It was a joy.
Austin’s mother reported that the last thing he said when he went to bed on Friday night was, “I wish I was still on the catamaran.”
What a way to ring in my 50th year! This trip has exceeded our expectations in every way. We knew whichever port was around the corner or what delicious food would be put on the table, it was all nothing less than perfect. We couldn't have asked for better hosts and company. We hope to sail with Azuria again! Thanks again for the PERFECT FAMILY VACATION!
An absolutely amazing trip, every day was an adventure and each location was the most beautiful. Thank you for making our New Years trip everything we had hoped for and more.
